Can sent by Ferris-- thanks pal! Light orange, off white head. bright and juicy, with mild sweetness balanced by bitterness.If you are at all uncertain as to what a "juicy" hop profile is like, then this beer can help you understand! Delicious.

Pours a clear golden with a small white head that leaves good lacing. Nose is of oranges and resin. Taste is more oranges, lightly sweet and pretty bitter but not harsh. Some floury cereals in the finish. Body is medium, carbonation moderate. Lightly juicy. A really nice one for sure! Not sure what is up with all these crazy good fresh hop (harvest?) ales from BC this year?

czar (8749) - Qubec, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 2, 2016
can shared by mathieuc, thanks man! pours unclear bright golden orange with a creamy off-white head offering good retention and lacing. almost juicy citrus, spicy citra, toasted spicy cereals, lots of orange fruitiness, clean yeast action. moderate carbonation, light body - oily; almost balanced grassy-spicy-resinous finish. pretty solid fresh citra pale ale.

pushkinwow (2731) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 31, 2016
Can. Mostly clear copper with an off white head that fades to a thin ring. Have to say this was a strange - the couple of sniffs and sips were right from the can and were delicious - lots of fresh hops with a light malt character. But then once I poured into a glass the hops seems to dissipate and almost age, becoming slightly stale with some musty characteristics, the maltiness becomes more dominant and it went from balanced and smooth to astringently bitter. Both ways moderate carbonation and body, definitely much more smooth at first. Odd.

SlovakSniper (5394) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 25, 2016
Une robe orange et une mousse un peu sale mais tenace. Mon nez est assailli par les fruits trs agrables du Citra et par des nuances de feuilles de houblons, dherbes et de fort. Bonne base malte qui se fait sentir mais qui ne prend pas trop de place. Les saveurs dagrumes et de pches et dherbes tombent dans mes cordes. La bouche est crmeuse, peu ptillante avec un corps moyen-fort. La finale est fruite, modrment amre et lgrement douce: jai limpression de croquer dans une boule orange juteuse, frache et finement gorge de sucres naturels

stantheman (991) - British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 15, 2016
On tap at Darbys Gastown in Vancouver. A typical golden orange color with moderate white head and intense piney hop nose that is confirmed on tasting. A bit of malt in the background for balance. Long bitter finish. Nice! 4

Oakes (16655) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 2, 2016
Draft at the brewery. Hazy amber, bubbly head. Has a leafy hop nose. Light caramel, earthy and piney hop taste, nice malt balance. A bit caramel bit a bit toasty as well. Nice brew - good hop notes and they used enough to make a difference.

beerplace (1342) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 2, 2016
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2016 Tall can from the brewery. Pours a hazy golden with a white head. Aroma brings loads of piney hops. Taste and aftertaste are pretty the same, not so intensive, though, but very fresh. Good stuff.

UPDATED: OCT 16, 2016 473ml can really fresh dated today 09/28/2016, pours a clears golden orange with medium head. Aroma is sweet, citrus, caramel, light hops, and mild spices. Flavour is initially bitter hoppy, but as the palate adjusts it is quite tasty. Again a decent sweetness and a moderate resinous bitterness, some pine, and plenty of tropical fruits with some floral hints.

Can 473ml. Thx Tom10101 the original. Pours golden with low-medium white head. Good lacing. Aroma is of pine, resin, tropical fruits. Taste is of pine, resin, bitterness, alcohol, tropical fruits, some vegetal notes. Palate: Medium body. Medium-high carbonation. Overall: Nice, tasty. Lots of hops. Stellar fresh hop ale. What is up with harvest ales killing it this year? I suspect the use of some non-harvest hops.
